As Gavin Delahunty writes, 'Carl Andre has also made an art of words.' Published on the occasion of the exhibition at the Museum zu Allerheiligen in Switzerland, this retrospective monograph presents the artist's poems.Carl Andre lays words on paper just as he lays pieces of metal or brick on the floor. Formed by letters piled up in blocks of words assembled together, on top of each other, these poems, which he has written since the 1960s, arise as 'sculptural configurations'.In the tradition of concrete poetry, words become adjustable entities moved around and placed within the limits of the space of the sheet of paper in order to create new configurations and patterns, and eventually new works of art. 'Andre [ ... ] understands the word as a concrete module, similar to the squares of industrial metal, wooden timbers, or bricks in his signature three-dimensional pieces, ' writes Rob Weiner.Published with the Museum zu Allerheiligen, Schaffhausen.English and German text.As Gavin Delahunty writes, a#39;Carl Andre has also made an art of words.
